Another one of my favorite classic cars is the 1959 Ford Anglia 105e featured in the Harry Potter franchise. This is the classic car that began my love of all classic cars as a child  :) This compact car was produced for the British market, however it featured many American style characteristics such as the fins over the taillights. I always thought it looked similar to the Chevrolet Bel Airs and the Ford Thunderbirds. This is such a neat little car with a lot of personality and style  8)

Probably M939 series 5 ton US Army 6x6 of all things.  The military vehicle hobby became a large part of what I do, and pales in comparison to my lighting hobby.

We've gpt too many favourite vehicles to mention, however our least favourite one is the van we have just hired.

The Renault Kangoo is horrible  :poof:

The handbrake is a weird shape, with the handgrip at 90 degrees to what you expect and the power socket is right underneath it so that when you go to apply the brake you knock what ever is plugged in and it goes off.!!!  :curse:

We're both fans of some of the classic small cars from the 1960s. :)
And the current front runner is a classic VW Beetle.  :love:

My dream is to have a classic car to restore. My 2 favorite classic cars:

1960 Chevrolet Impala
1957 Ford Thunderbird

A few other cars that I’d enjoy having if I had unlimited space in my garage:

Honda S2000 (pre 2003)
2003 Acura TL Type S (Upscale version of the Honda Accord with incredible acceleration and upgraded handling)
2004 Lexus GS400 (Luxury brand Lexus’ first muscle car)
2nd Gen. Mazda Miata (Learned to drive stick shift from fellow LG member good friend Nicksfans in this one)
2006 Subaru WRX STi (Japanese import)
2004 Volkswagen Routan (Ultra-luxury car If I had a chauffeur)
Cadillac CTS-V (Best of both worlds with a comfortable Cadillac interior and a super fast Corvette engine)

@CEB1993, the Cadillac CTS has a Corvette engine? Or do you mean an engine similar to the Corvette engine? I honestly
didn't know that car had power like that. That's interesting, especially since my neighbor is a proud owner of both the Cadillac CTS,
and the C7 Corvette

There are 2 versions of hi-po CTS, CTS-V and CTS V Sport. CTS-V has a supercharged Corvette V8. It is bonkers. My friend has a CTS V Sport, it is twin turbo V6 and is also very, very fast.

Then the CTS also has 4 banger and GM corporate 3.6 V6 for other trims.

@Takemorepills, when I get the chance, I'm gonna ask my neighbor what kind of CTS he owns. I haven't gotten a good look
at it yet, since each time that we hangout, I'm always too busy drooling over the Corvette :lol:

Yes, it’s a modified Corvette engine with a 5.7 liter V8 and a Tremac 6 speed manual transmission. A few other modifications were made including the use of Brembo brakes and some cosmetic changes in the interior.

The 1st generation (2003-2007) is definitely my favorite version of the CTS-V, partly because my grandparents used to have 2004  SRX (SUV version on the CTS). A friend of my friend has a CTS-V  that I rode in at our Autocross club, and it hauls! Amazing exhaust note and razor sharp handling when hitting the track!

I'm gonna have to check out that CTS my neighbor has, and see what exact model it is. I'm also gonna have to get him
to take a drive with me in the Corvette and CTS someday. I've already missed the opportunity to drive in that Corvette a couple weeks ago.

Old topic, but mine is either the 1988 Toyota pickup (Hilux elsewhere) or the old Chevy square-body Silverado pickup.
